About Public Access Television – Channel 95
NBTV95 provides New Bedford residents and organizations a means to produce a wide variety of cable television programs about their experiences, concerns, and interests. It is hoped that residents and organizations in New Bedford will take full advantage of this public electronic medium for free expression.
Public Access is housed in a state-of-the art cable access building located in the far South End of New Bedford overlooking Buzzard’s Bay. Our facility consists of two fully functional studios, a Green screen set, and five editing suites. We also have portable equipment including a number of digital video cameras, wireless and boom microphones, and light kits. We share our Public studios with New Bedford Government Access Channel 18 and Educational Access Channel 9.
We strive to provide outreach to all segments of our multi-cultural and multi-lingual community, ascertaining areas of programming needs, and assessing community response to public access programming. We provide a comprehensive training program to New Bedford residents and organizations to help them produce quality television programming.
NBTV95 is funded through an annual grant from Comcast and is one three cable access channels operated by the City of New Bedford. NBTV95 is managed by the Public Access Director for the City of New Bedford. We officially hit the “cable” waves March 20, 1995.
